In Case You Missed It: Aug. 23rd-29th

nites logoA lot of stuff happens in a week. I can't cover it all, but thankfully there's an entire army of people with Blogger and Wordpress accounts in Austin to fill in some gaps. Here's a brief rundown of entertainment news and Austin weirdness, as well as this week's Craigslist Missed Connections.


FESTIVAL FUN
-
Lots of festival news this week. Fun Fun Fun Fest, which takes place in November, announced the full lineup on Tuesday. Headliners include Danzig, Of Montreal, Ratatat, The Jesus Lizard, etc. Read the full lineup here. And check out which local bands will grace the Fun Fun stages here. Also, this week: Austin City Limits Fest organizers announced their replacements for the Beastie Boys and Lily Allen, two acts who dropped out recently. Filling in for the Beasties is indie post-punkers Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Raphael Saadiq of the '90s hitmakers Tony Toni Toné replaces Allen. Read more about it at Austin Sound.


HOW TO BE A ROCK STAR
-
Over at TwoGroove, blogger Tyler Groover is wearing his satire hat (perhaps a little too tightly). Check out this amusing, if not bitter-sounding, series he launched this week called How To Be A Rock Star. Part 1 (click here) deals with getting drunk before shows and canceling at the last minute, while part 2 (click here) deals with acting like a diva and not selling merch at shows.


GOING POSTAL
-
Earlier this month, the United States Post Office announced that it put four local post offices on the chopping block. Closing the four stations is a money-saving move for USPS. One of the locations is East Austin's East Station at 1914 E. Sixth St. The blog East Austinite earlier this week hosted a happy hour to discuss strategies for protesting the closure. East Station is the only location in that area. Read more about what they're trying to do at East Austinite. Read the original story at KXAN.


Quote of the week:

This next song is about going to the titty bar. It's called "Even People In Africa Have Heard of Led Zeppelin".

- Joe P., lead singer of Shitty Carwash




MISSED CONNECTIONS OF THE WEEK
from Craigslist Austin...

ogdon arts - m4w - 99 (sac)
what does someone do when they are completely infatuated with their teacher? Is it wrong to let you know? We're both adults, you're beautiful. I love watching you lecture... I love when we make eye contact. Is it just me or do you really lock eyes with me every few seconds? I see that ring finger is bare... hmmmmm... Lets do lunch?


your mustache smiled at my mustache - m4m - 27 (HEB 7th & Pleasant Valley)

it all went down (or rather didnt) wednesday night around 9 o'clock... my mustache is sorry it ran away. i was in line to check out with a friend and you were doing the same... along with your impeccable facial hair.
just kept thinking about it today and said "what the hell!" maybe your mustache is wondering what happened to mine as well.


A Belated Spark is the Best - m4w - 34 (Bee Cave)
You couldn't break into the storage room, but I hope that the one-way mirror room was large enough to satisfy you. I saw your post moments ago and am floored. I feel like someone kicked me in the heart, not the nuts. A hug in the cave of bees isn't the same as a hug elsewhere, when little brother isn't around. I still owe you.

Really wanted to surprise you today and glad that our missed connection turned into at least a brief connection.

Although you were eating chocolate covered cat food and abused me with your alien knee, I still want you. On the dance floor. Turning heads.


HOLIDAY INN TOWN LAKE - m4m - 55 (AUSTIN)
